Manuscript Submission Information
Manuscripts should be submitted online at www.mdpi.com by registering and logging in to this website. Once you are registered, click here to go to the submission form. Manuscripts can be submitted until the deadline. All papers will be peer-reviewed. Accepted papers will be published continuously in the journal (as soon as accepted) and will be listed together on the special issue website. Research articles, review articles as well as short communications are invited. For planned papers, a title and short abstract (about 100 words) can be sent to the Editorial Office for announcement on this website.
Submitted manuscripts should not have been published previously, nor be under consideration for publication elsewhere (except conference proceedings papers). All manuscripts are thoroughly refereed through a single-blind peer-review process. A guide for authors and other relevant information for submission of manuscripts is available on the Instructions for Authors page. Chemosensors is an international peer-reviewed open access quarterly journal published by MDPI.
Please visit the Instructions for Authors page before submitting a manuscript. The Article Processing Charge (APC) for publication in this open access journal is 350 CHF (Swiss Francs). Submitted papers should be well formatted and use good English. Authors may use MDPI's English editing service prior to publication or during author revisions.

Tentative title: Microfluidic e-tongue applied in soil analysis
Authors: Toni Riul
Short Abstract: The increasing worldwide population and the same cultivable area demands better use of agricultural practices and natural resources, implying high demand for sensors in precision agriculture. Here we present a microfluidic electronic tongue device as a complementary tool for soil analysis. A control soil sample and aliquots of it enriched with K, Ca, Mg, N, P and S were analysed using impedance measurements from 1Hz – 1MHz. Principal Component Analysis (PCA) and Interactive Document Map (IDMAP) projection technique were explored in data analysis, indicating good reproducibility without evidences of cross-contamination of the microfluidic sensor in three independent sets of measurements.
Title: Recent advances in Magnesium detection: from single selective sensors to multisensory approach
Authors: Larisa Lvova1,3, Corrado Di Natale2,3, Andrey Legin3,4 and Roberto Paolesse1,3
Abstract: In this paper the recent achievements in development of chemical sensors for magnesium ions analysis are oreviewed. The working principles and the main types of sensors applied are described. Focus is placed on the optical sensors and multisensory systems applications for magnesium assessment in different media. Further, a critical outlook on the employment of multisensory approach in comparison to single selective sensors application in biological samples in particular is presented.
